    I want to get into top 10 unis and do Economics and I was wondering if anyone knows what Alevels to do?

    I am planning to do only 3 a levels and only focus on all of them instead of 4 and drop one after.
    ----------------------
    •Maths
    •Economics
    •Business Studies or Chemistry or Physics (I hate sciences so id rather not do them)

    Anything you would like to change? / or Any advice?

    Thanks

    At least do Physics As. LSE would like that if you decide to do A level business studies.

    If you want to leave the possibility of going to Cambridge or LSE open, I would take maths, further maths, economics and two other subjects of your choice. I would not, however, take business studies as some universities don't acknowledge it (whether they should do that or not). Most people who go for economics do tend to take one science, usually physics (because most people are doing maths and further maths anyway). Don't throw a science in there if you are close to certain you will do badly, however. Hope that helps.

    Do a science rather than business studies and economics together, wider range of subjects will impress them more.

    You really need further maths (if you want to go to Cambridge or LSE). Cambridge can say stuff on there website about how it is not a necessity, but in reality it basically is. Also you really need to have a minimum of four. If you really want to take business studies, then by all means, but I would only do it if you are willing to take all four (maths, further mats, economics and business studies) to A2.

    Either combination should be fine just check their requirements on the website. If you hate sciences then don't do them. It is a lot of work, trust me! Only do the subjects you enjoy, and that satisfy your course requirements.
